Josh Braun - Selling workshop <> Worth it?

Any folks here taken the Josh Braun's Poke the Bear live workshop that he offers for orgs?


We're looking to get in some sales influencers take a live virtual workshop with our sales team just to get the game going and get them all fired up for summer, since you know how hard it is during these times.


Looking for some feedback since it's a lil too pricey.

Should we go for his live virtual training?

He's the fake JB (John Barrows). Check the real JB out:Β  https://jbarrows.com/

Right, I always said JB to refer to John Barrows and then recently I found out that there is a Josh Braun so now I have to say the full name to make sure people know who I’m talking about.

JB’s training is fantastic, the spreadsheets alone are worth it!

Not sure if I would go that far, but John Barrows is definitely the man. Josh Braun has some good stuff as well. Thoughts on Keenan (Gap Selling)?

I believe I have blocked/hidden Keenan on LinkedIn because they make me irrationally irritated. The delivery of information and style of their content does nothing for me.

Based on his LI content I wouldn't waste your time... Unless you sell shoes to people who run triathlons

Hahaha, he uses that example WAY too often. Doesn't he realize most people following him are in the tech industry?

So I’m no Josh Braun expert, I found out about him recently. But I went through all his LI stuff (articles,posts,etc) and saw that he recycles the same 3-4 ideas, but formats it in different ways so people won’t notice. Like poweredbycaffeine mentioned I would go with John Barrows. His program JBsales is very insightful.Β

Josh Braun also LOVES to paraphrase Chris Voss. You're better off going to the source.

I like Josh Braun a lot - I used his 4T email template at my last SDR role and made good money from it. Nothing groundbreaking. He honestly just takes the most easy-to-implement strategies from other people and describes them in very simple ways. Good for beginners or for easy-to-use strategies.

Hire Ross Morgan or Guru Ganesha. These guys have had a more measurable impact on their efforts. Ask any other person to role play or play our their methodology and I guarantee you you’ll get fluff.Β 

ive tried em all. Ross Morgan and Guru Ganesha are the guys.

I enjoy his online courses, worth the price I have no idea how much his in person thing is…. Depends on your budget I guess I’d say go if you can

It's just too much. And top of that, he's segmented it into cold calls and email teardown and charging extra

So it's not just a single cold outbound workshop but two separate charges for cold calls and emails? Lame
